FNAF meets Silent Hill in a new horror game for PC

FNAF, or Five Nights at Freddy’s, if you prefer its formal title, has finally joined Silent Hill, courtesy of a new horror game, available to PC gamers right now via Steam. But don’t say I didn’t warn you, this one is not for the faint of heart.

Created by DarkStone Digital, the developers behind indie horrors like Kohate and Our Secret Below, The Mortuary Assistant casts you as the eponymous undertaker who is called in to work late one night when his boss messes up the shift rotation. Now, I know what you’re thinking, but that’s not what makes this game scary.

The FNAF angle comes from the fact that you’re essentially stuck at night, trying to get through the duties of your weird and ghoulish job until the morning release. Corpses need their jaws wired shut, their veins pumped with embalming fluid, and their various parts patched up and rebuilt, like the unfortunate Mike Schmidt, watching Fazbear’s hideous animatronics stalk the night shift, you’re stuck doing work that be horrible at best.

But obviously, it doesn’t stop there. Before long, faces begin to appear in windows, figures sneak by out of the corner of your eye, and this hideous creature that appears to be made of chalk and plaster of paris (you’ll know what I mean when you see it) begins. stalking you, and it all gets very dark and very psychological, Silent Hill-esque, very quickly. I’m not one to brag, but normally I don’t like horror games that much: Alien: Isolation, Inside, Amnesia, PT, I’ve done them all. But The Mortuary Assistant has some moments that I really have a hard time dealing with, and it’s not because I don’t like being called into work on my day off.
